John Oliver Finds The Hilarity In Death Penalty, Botched Executions
Leading off his second episode with a reminder that Last Week Tonight has a "long, proud, one-week history" of covering the week's biggest story, John Oliver recognizes that's not necessarily a laff riot when the biggest story is a botched execution in Oklahoma. And so, aware that his audience may not be into the topic, Oliver promises that if they hang with him (not literally, silly), he'll reward them with a video of "tiny hamsters eating tiny burritos." We'd just like to point out that Yr Wonkette has been adding adorable kittens to awful stories for a couple years now, and we're still not sure whether that helps, or if our dear readers now just have a Pavlovian dread of adorable kittens.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
